TBS's ARE WE THERE YET? Arrives as First Comedy Hit of the Summer

TBS's new original comedy series ARE WE THERE YET? debuted Wednesday in a big way with 3.2 million viewers and 1.6 million adults 18-49 for its 9 p.m. (ET/PT) premiere episode, according to fast national data from Nielsen Media Research. The second episode at 9:30 p.m. built on that success, with more than 3.3 million viewers and 1.7 million adults 18-49, ranking it as ad-supported cable's top sitcom telecast for the year to date. The 9 p.m. episode ranked a close second. ARE WE THERE YET? also performed well among adults 18-34, with the episodes each scoring more than 700,000 viewers in the demo.

"We've built a Wednesday night lineup that delivers a young, diverse audience," said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming, for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "ARE WE THERE YET? is a promising addition to a strong schedule that already features the hits Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Meet the Browns."
